The lights are on
What started out as a simple interview about a studio evolved into this: an hour-long documentary about the 18-year history of Volition, Inc. The studio provided an unprecedented amount of never-before-seen concept art and early footage of their great games, even from a couple that were canceled before their release. The video covers a lot of ground, so we divided it into four parts so that you can jump right in and learn the story behind your favorite Volition games. We recommend starting from the beginning to get a full look at not only the history of Volition, but how far the gaming industry has come in 18 short years. Let us know what you think, and thanks for watching.

This was really cool. Gameinformer have been coming out with such great content like this recently. Really love that.
Very good job on this Ben. I'm glad to see more retrospective hitting the web these past few years, it's important for posterity.
Thank You so much for this inspiring piece on good old fashion work ethics and gut belief to get things done ...this was awesome on so many levels ...but what i got out of this more than anything that one may begin with a dream but its the in the trenches and believing in who and what you are doing...having the core belief and guts "we don't know what we're doing but we Are gonna get it done" beautiful....I don't particularlly like cold environments these days...but I would love an opportunity to submit music and soundscapes for these guys...Im sure there were moments down & out "I wanna eat your guts but I love ya man" but at the end of day the "ethic" getting the project or mission completed not because of a paycheck (that's important) but because the fuel for long tern enrichment is having the proper work ethic...failure is okay but defeat never...smile
I would love to see this become a series of sorts. I have a very soft spot for game industry documentaries.
Excellent work...really enjoyed it.
Reminds me of G4's Icons show. I wish they would bring that back and make it as detailed as this.
:'D i <3 u volition
Funny...looking back after playing RFA and hearing the company lead say tha destruction is a corridor shooter doesn't make sense kind of makes me think "what where they thinking." I loved Red Faction Guerilla. To me, RFA makes no sense and I hope that they have the opportunity to continue the series.
I think I need to play through Saints Row 1 and 2... ugh
